Good news indeed.

"The Hassle Factor", as the TF Green Director puts it, is really overblown by some. Ever since they completed the tunnels, its been easy as ever to get to the airport. I commuted there 5-6 days a week for 4 years into the Central garage. It's an old argument now. Traffic is not really that bad either...unless you don't like to share the road with a few more cars than you'll find in the suburbs  

Good to see Southwest is doing well...not surprised.

Out of curiosity, how much %-wise does international traffic contribute to Logan's total traffic?

The "Hassle Factor" I found doesnt have to do with Logan at all (at least from personal experiences) When I moved to ATL I had to switch from PVD to BOS due to extreme fare differences (before Delta had fare parity in the markets) The tunnel is quick and easy and Terminal A is great, and rental cars is easy...BUT after getting stuck in traffic repeatedly on 93 South (All hours of the day, 11pm, thanksgiving day, you name it) I started paying the premium to use PVD again...that was helped by the fact that Delta pegged PVD-ATL to be something to the equivalent of BOS-ATL + $50-75. On a summer afternoon I once returned a rental car, checked in , cleared security and was at my gate in just over 10 min at PVD.

Fair enough. There is always something to be said for the convenience factor of using a less 'complicated' airport

Heck, my boss (President of the company no less) uses PVD almost exclusively when he comes to town. The reason I tell you this...our office is only 10mi from BOS!
For his travel needs, PVD is usually a cheaper option and he can make up the difference by renting a car for cheaper too.

Despite growing up midway between BOS and PVD, I've only used PVD once. Part of that is that I've only flown domestic three times and twice I was with a group, but BOS isn't the hassle it used to be especially with the Silver Line. It used to be Back Bay-Orange Line-Blue Line-Shuttle Bus, and who would do that?

B6 will continue to grow and have all of Terminal C next year. I wonder if they are the carrier Massport is looking at for MEX service mentioned in the article? SN must be the one they are looking at hopefully going to BRU, and Hainan might finally start service to China with the 787. Let's hope 2012 is just as good for BOS as 2011 was, if not better!

MHT is more convenient to me (especially since the bridge from Rt 3 across the Merrimack opened) but am finding myself at BOS fairly often since Jet Blue has a lot of useful non-stops from BOS, and using the shuttle from the park and ride is cheaper than parking at BOS or MHT when I'm staying more than a few days.

Me. Even now, sometimes.

Given how slowly the silver line goes, and how long it can take for the tourists to figure out how to pay their fare on it, orange/red/green to blue to the bus can sometimes still be faster than the silver line, at a time of day where you don't have to wait for the connections. of course, if you have luggage that's a pain.

MHT and PVD feasted off the misery of getting to and from Logan, and they built & spent accordingly. MHT has a fair-sized debt load but the funding stream to pay off the debt service is a whole lot less now than before: fewer cars in the garages & lots; fewer people buying meals at the restaurants; less revenue from landing fees.

Topping it off (in my view) is apathetic management at MHT. They promote their successes such as a 'new' nonstop to Denver when it really was just the redirection of a previous PHX flight. They pitch 'good news' to an unsuspecting public who wouldn't know a 757 from a Colt-45. But because these people feast on public dollars, they have no incentive to help the airport grow.

I live about equi-distant between the two. When you are not fighting traffic the commute to Logan is pretty easy, it's a straight shot. But if you live outside the 128 belt, and you are dealing with the commute hour traffic it's a real bear - traffic the whole way, you have three tolls at a minimum you have to go through, so it can double your commute time and seriously increase the stress level. Unfortunately the commute through Providence is not easy, either. You can always take 295, but that takes longer and is a little more difficult to find your way.

In a nutshell, TF Green is cheaper for parking and easier to get through, but last minute flights out of there are more expensive. Add to that fewer flights and smaller planes, and that discourages flyers. I think the real increase for Logan, though is the the increase in JetBlue and Southwest. If JetBlue were to start service to TF Green, I think you would see a serious shift in traffic southward.

I appreciate your input and have no actual insight as to MHT management, but heck, this kind of move is a natural for management everywhere. There always going to accenuate the postive, even if it takes bending the truth. It is a new flight as in one that didn't exist before, but of course they won't mention the loss of the PHX nonstop because that's not good news.

It's more irksome to have gone with the "Manchester-Boston Airport" renaming. That speaks to a huge degree of despiration, IMHO, and probably hasn't brought in a single new pax, and if it has, it's probably pissed off 10x more pax when they get to MHT and find no decent options to actually get to Boston.

MHT had been the beneficiary of year after year of good economies, but as soon as things went south with the economy, MHT followed shortly thereafter. Most of the people I've met on flights ex-MHT are leisure travellers and in a bad economy things such as vacations get cut back really quickly. As a user of MHT and a NH taxpayer (lol) I support the funding that's gone into MHT anyway. I hope things will get better at MHT as the economy improves, but the cutbacks of the legacies at BOS have made room for LCCs to flurish there, and that will be tough to handle even when the economy improves.

Manchester is just too much of a bear to get to. Logically it shouldn't be that bad - they are just as close, if not closer, to a lot of the companies located in the north 495 belt. But getting up Rt. 3 is a hassle. Add to that that there is nice and easy public transportation from the 495 belt to Boston and on to Logan, and that tips the scale. MHT did alright when the economy was growing and there was some surge in Southern New Hampshire, but that has dried up quite a bit as NH sought to promote larger industry based businesses over knowledge based start-ups.

This is an example where a good relatively high speed express route, done right, would help the airline business. If they did an hourly service between the two, with limited stops (128 belt, 495/Lowell, Nashua, MHT, Downtown Manchester) that also ran on weekends, it would make MHT a whole lot more attractive. But the MBTA contracts with the operators prevents that, and New Hampshire is so anti-public transport, it wont happen.

But getting up Rt. 3 is a hassle.

Why? It's 3 lanes wide from 128 to past Nashua, and most MHT users from the south will be driving in the opposite direction during the morning/evening rush hours, and off-peak the road is pretty much wide open.

Quoting cloudboy (Reply 14):

I'd substitute "usable" for "nice and easy", but yeah, MHT will never get the benefit of mass transport that BOS gets.

And the issue with BOS and mass transport is that if you are travelling during rush hours you are travelling with the rush hour traffic, so the bus suffers from jammed highways and trains are packed too.

Geez, I didn't know NH had any strategies at all!

I've been working in high teck in the area for 20+ years and there's no evidence of one that I can see.

One would think NH's lack of income tax would make it attractive, but from what I've seen working on both sides of the NH border, most people from MA think NH is nothing but cow pastures and they hugely resist leaving the 128 belt never mind the 495 belt.

I can just imagine how costly that would be and thus how many pax it'd need to use it to make it viable. I can't see it happeneing.

Yep, I don't get it. A few years ago there was talk of opening up rail service from Nashua to Lowell and beyond, and NH refused to even fund the necessary studies. What's up with that?

I live closer to Logan and normally haven't had a problem getting to it--it also helps that it is much larger that PVD and offers flights to a greater range of destinations both domestic and international. However, when I did live in Providence I found PVD to be incredibly smooth to pass through, much moreso that Logan. It's great that people living in the MA/RI area have to excellent airports to choose from.

I also know that the T (MBTA Commuter Rail) extended their Providence line this past year to add a stop at TF Green--has anyone taken that line, and regardless, does anyone know yet its impact on PVD customer traffic? Given that, as others have said, there's no real easy public transportation method to get to Logan, it's nice for people living along 95 (and parts of 128, and even Boston) that don't want to drive to have access to TF Green with the new stop, but I don't know how much traffic it will really divert from Logan, especially since the T only stops at the airport station a few times on weekdays, and not at all on weekends.

I live 40 miles south of BOS, and 20 miles northeast of PVD. It takes 25 minutes to get to PVD with light/no traffic. It takes 45 minutes to BOS with NO traffic, and a few times, well over 1.5 hours with traffic. There is no way of knowing if there will be traffic, so I typically stick with PVD. I flew PVD-BWI just last week--arrived at 6:50 for a 7:55pm flight, and I was at the gate by 7:05. Even had time to go to DD before the flight. I find PVD incredibly efficient and smooth, and fares are competitive to BOS.

The only time I've flown through BOS in the past six months was to fly BOS-BWI. WN's out of PVD was well over $150 more expensive, so I chose to make the hike. I was lucky, and there was no traffic to BOS--took only 40 minutes to get there. However, I waited in the check in and TSA lines for over 25 minutes. This is BOS's downfall: the congestion.

It is great that I have the choice of BOS and PVD. I have PVD for the shorthall flights, and BOS for the flights to LAX, SFO, PDL, etc.

Once an airline has a 'core group' of service from an airport, it is easier/cheaper to launch new services (until the market is saturated, of course). B6 seems to being doing well gaining higher RASM business passengers at BOS. They will do the old business strategy of 'building from strength.'

I'm curious, how many gates does WN have at BOS?

I'm Alaska Gold MVP, do SEA-BOS to go to Groton, CT. Even though I drive by PVD it is far faster to go direct to BOS with the extra drive (besides for the free upgrades to 1st when available). SEA-BOS is almost always full and AS gets to charge $100 to $200 more than those that hub elsewhere. I think JetBlue is doing the same thing, cashing in on being the nonstop flight.

That should tell you a whole lot right there about NH's government. In some ways, the perception I get is that they still do things the old fashioned way, targeting specific companies and such. They don't even seem to grasp that thre is a whole section of industry that is start up companies. They got all excited over Segway, and either forgot about everyone else, or became so disenchanted that they dont want to think technology anymore.

I know several people who had tried living in NH. The income tax may not be there, but they still have to get their money somehow. Property taxes are, as I understand, something terrible. What gets me is that everyone makes such a big deal over the sales tax, but there is so little for retail in NH compared to Massachusetts. It pretty much flies in the face of the argument of how important low sales taxes are.

There was a rumor a while ago that Massport was pressuring JetBlue to fly out of Worcester since they were running out of space at Logan. Naturally Massport doesn't want to send traffic to PVD or MHT, but at some point I think JetBlue is going to have to. There just isn't that much room for expansion there. If things pick up again, they are going to need to start flying out of other airports if they want to grow any more.

They can grow elsewhere (other region than greater BOS)... There is no pressuring a business to grow where it isn't viable.

To some degree, but MA house prices are something terrible. The amount I saved between the house in I have in Nashua and one along the 495 belt will easily pay for two decades of property tax, even more if I put in the interest I'd be paying to borrow the extra money for that house in MA. If I tried to live in the 128 belt or further in, it'd be an even larger difference in my favor.

It seems some put a huge premium on living closer to Boston. Maybe they have to to get work? Some say they do it for the kulcha, but if I want that I can get to it easy enough.

What makes even less sense is the prices I've seen on houses out in Worcester and points west of there. I have no idea why people are paying those kinds of prices out there.
